As is the case with most of the highly popular online video slot games, Hitman started out as a video game. Initially developed and published by Danish company IO Interactive, the original video game revolves around the adventures of a certain Agent 47.
Agent 47 is a clone, and the perfect assassin, having no conscience to get in the way of his murderous deeds. This places Agent 47 in high demand with the wealthy and the elite wanting to get rid of someone and leave no trace.
The main objective is to pass through various levels of the game by successfully assassinating a designated high profile target. Players can attain favourable ranks as they move through the motions. Favourable ranks are rewarded handsomely. Hitman is a highly popular video game, and an updated version of the game has been released every year since the year 2000, with the latest version published in 2016.
The online video slot version, developed by Microgaming, is every bit as enticing as the original video game, and is played on 5 reels and 15 paylines. The game features a Free Spins Bonus Game as well as various other themed bonus online pokies games.
Agent 47 is the star on the reels – photographed from various angles. He is joined by all the weapons of his trade – lethal injections, sniper rifles, the number 18, revolvers, a knife, a dollar bill, pistols and more.
Agent 47 is the wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols – in so doing posing as the good guy for a change. What’s more, is that the wild symbol has the ability to expand when landed on certain reels. Expanding wild symbols have the ability to expand and cover several positions on the reels simultaneously, creating the opportunity for multiple winning combinations.
Hitman’s wild symbol will expand to cover the entire 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels.
Hitman Contract Bonus Game
Three or more calculators anywhere on the reels will activate the Hitman Contract Bonus Game. This is your chance to partake in your very own assassination contract. A target must be selected, as well as a method of assassination. The reward is a random multiplier, up to x57 of your total bet.
Insignia Bonus Game
Three Hitman Insignia symbols anywhere on the reels will activate an additional Pick Me Bonus Game. This time around, any one of the Insignia symbols must be selected. Each Insignia symbol conceals a mystery bonus cash prize.
Hitman Free Spins Bonus Game
The number 18 symbol is the key to unlocking no less than 18 free games. In order to activate the Free Games Feature, 3 or more of the number 18 symbols must appear anywhere on the reels. All winnings scored during the Hitman Free Spins Bonus Game are doubled up.
The game’s paylines are not fixed, making the slot’s already flexible betting system even more flexible. Minimum bet starts at 0.01 credits per payline, and increases to a maximum of 0.25 credits per active payline.
